Absolutely fresh sea food; we chose it as it swam about. Spices just right for our European palates. Wonderful variety of tastes, some fried, some poached, some in sauces. We were taken there by friends, who also chose the food so I have little idea of what we actually ate, but it included the crab which was amazing. So was the huge prawn...Best food so far in Surabaya. Atmosphere not so wonderful: it's a busy restaurant with bright lights, very functional rather than atmospheric!

Almost everything in Layar is delicious. Part of it is because the seafood is fresh and you can even pick out live seafood if you're an expert. One of the local's favorite is salted eggs crabs. It is crabs cooked with salted eggs sauce. Beware of your cholesterol because crab and salted eggs are your enemies. Well, there's always Lipitor though.

The place gets very crowded and the staff might get confused with your order. Once, they did not serve the crab that I picked out. I'm not sure if this is a pure coincidence or if they are trying to cheat me (the crab is smaller than the one I picked). So just be alert... The place is not fancy but you know a good seafood place is never fancy. The tables are covered with plastics so that the waiters save times in setting up your table. Just tear the dirty plastics and tadaaa! next customers can have the table.

Layar is the place to go when you want some fresh seafood in Surabaya

The BBQ / grilled fish (ikan) is fantastic!!
Most of the seafood is delicious except for the crabs.

Don't worry about the spiciness. It is not too spicy!

A lot of seafood variety to choose and you don't want to miss the salted egg crabs, it is one of the best that I have ever eaten in Indonesia.
